[slackware-security] mutt (SSA:2014-071-01)

New mutt packages are available for Slackware 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current
to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/mutt-1.5.23-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a buffer overflow where malformed RFC2047 header
lines could result in denial of service or potentially the execution
of arbitrary code as the user running mutt.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
